Perth’s Festival of the Arts is a reflection of the city’s vibrancy, one of its sponsors believes.

City legal firm Lindsays is supporting the arTay Exhibition being staged at Perth Concert Hall plaza as part of the festival between May 23 and 26.

Curated by Frames Gallery, it will feature established Scottish artists and fresh emerging talent, woven together in a gallery to be created in the venue’s outdoor plaza.

The event - one of the largest exhibitions of contemporary Scottish art - is just one element of an exciting programme of events being held as part of Perth Festival of the Arts, which is in its 52nd year. It will see artists and performers across the world descend on the city, attracting audiences and boosting local businesses.

Lindsays, which last year developed a physical presence in Perth by merging with legal firm Miller Hendry, is backing the event for the first time as part of its work in the community.

Andrew Diamond, Head of Perth office at Lindsays (pictured above), said: “arTay is a tremendous showcase. It is an attraction that represents so much of the vibrancy that, as a local firm, we see in and around Perth.

“We are delighted to be playing our part in it, supporting an event which will hopefully attract more people to visit this great city, see some fantastic art and boost the local economy at the same time.”

Perth Festival of the Arts runs from May 22 until June 1 and on June 8.

Festival Director Helen Band said: “We cannot wait for the festival series - of which arTay will undoubtedly be a real highlight, drawing thousands of visitors from across Scotland

“Working together with businesses and the wider community, we know that our events deliver great benefits for Perth - culturally, socially and economically. It means a lot to us to have the support of our partners who help make it all possible, attracting visitors and encouraging spending.”
